If you are going to Chennai suburbs on the AJJ-MAS line, this train is quite convinient in the day time for its halt at Tiruvallur. A local EMU from Kadambattur generally leaves once this train crosses Kadambattur to Chennai Central and also majorly lands up on the same platform as this train- If you are an unreserved ticket holder changing to that train is easier as another local ticket is not required and it connects to the stations of tirunindravur, avadi, ambattur etc-so overall gives a good connectivity with that connection

Reserved ticket means you are eligible to travel by that seat only- unreserved ticket theres no restriction that you have to take the particular train EG: i can take UR ticket of SF catch TPTY Exp till KPD, change over to CBE ICE till ajj and take local to my place without restriction- but same you cant do with reserved ticket-so same logic applies

But in Mumbai I think one can board a local from KYN to any suburbs like Mulund or Dombivili even if one has a reserved seat. I guess we can do the same there also. Also passengers heading towards the MSB-TBM line can book tickets upto TBM on NIGHT TRAINS only and change to an EMU at Park

A TTE on a EMU on TRL-Ambattur route told me once that you have a reserved ticket you cant use it in the Chennai local-that was in early morning local from tRL to Ambattur after getting down from kaveri
